Anastasya Martynova at Peckham Levels

Anastasya Martynova is a London-based, multidisciplinary artist specialising in wood carving and gilding.

Her practice involves primarily working in wood and glass, pushing the boundaries of traditional techniques in wood carving and reverse-glass gilding, to create contemporary pieces of art.

 

After a long background in art direction for the BBC, Anastasya was drawn away to the magical world of Craft. She transforms natural, raw materials into pieces that tell a story. Currently her focus is on working in wood; experimenting with scale and subverting familiar shapes to create a tactile, somewhat surreal experience. In her work, Anastasya is also exploring how traditional techniques and craftsmanship can be used in a contemporary way to reignite interest in age old techniques.

She says, “Through my work I hope to reignite interest in these age-old crafts by demonstrating that a traditional approach to technique and craftsmanship, blended with the exciting developments in technology and materials can create unexpected and beautiful results.”

Following the government’s latest advice on COVID19, it is with a heavy heart that in addition to fully closing our doors to the public, your local food traders will now be ceasing all food deliveries until further notice.

This is a difficult time for many, including our project and the 162 small, independent & incredible businesses who call Peckham Levels home. We will be looking at ways in which we can continue to give them the platform they need during this uncertain period. By following us on our socials or signing up to our newsletter, we can collectively look at ways to support Members and local traders.

We will provide updates as soon as we can.

Much love,
